Motor vehicles—home-garaged(Question No 625)

Mrs Dunne asked the Minister for Health, upon notice, on 21 September 2005:

How many cars, with ACT Government numberplates, in the Minister’s department are home-garaged every day;

How many are garaged by officers on call;

Of those which are not garaged by officers on call, (a) how many cars are there, (b) in which suburbs are they garaged and (c) in the week commencing 19 September 2005, for each car, how many (i) kilometres were driven to and from work and (ii) kilometres were driven for work purposes.

Mr Corbell: The answer to the member’s question is as follows:

The member’s question has been investigated and all ACT Government plated vehicles managed by ACT Health, currently being home-garaged have been identified and presented in the attached documents. Each ACT Health Division has been identified separately. The home garaging of vehicles by officers not on call is done so largely to provide security for the vehicle as secure parking is very limited within ACT Health managed buildings. Vehicles are also home-garaged occasionally when officers are required to attend evening or early morning meetings.
